    Have not tried them but I am thinking serious about a set. I have always had much better luck with a tall narrow tire in the muddy Missouri terrain than some of the other fatter tires. I am interested in opinions and where to get a set. Thanks Nike

    They look like "Cooper"s to me (that 's probably who makes them)
    I think Cooper sells them under the name SST's?
    They also sell them at Pepboys, under another name also.
    They are supposed to last about the same as BFG'MTs but are a little louder and obviosly less expensive.

    What's the deal with them? I liked the old Buckshot Mudders but they are too skinny.
    Anyone got a link to the sizes available and some tech about them?
    I'm looking for a 36 by 12.5 on 15, if anyone knows if they make this size.

    I heard a rumor that Maxxis is considering using a design similar to this in a truck tire, (this is an ATV tire).

    I doubt you will see anything that is more aggressive than a Bogger and still have DOT approval. The super large lugs and the huge spacing in between them makes it almost impossible to pass the minimum DOT requirements for handling and braking.

    I heard similar to the one pictured, more than likely they will modify them enough to get DOT approval. Even if they end up being close to the bogger, they will probably be cheaper. That would be cool.
